If you are struggling to build your family, and identify as Jewish, there is a community here to support you. Join The ROOTS.
The ROOTS is a monthly online experiential learning group for those confronting a family-building challenge. During a family-building journey, one can feel uprooted from one’s self, one’s community, one’s vision for the future, and one’s body. Often, those struggling to grow their families feel isolated from the Jewish community both socially and spiritually.
This group meets at 8 p.m. on the second Sunday of the month:
- Sunday, July 12
- Sunday, Aug. 9
- Sunday, Sept. 13
Who makes up The ROOTS?
This group is open to folks at any point on their fertility journey: primary or secondary infertility, pregnancy loss, etc. Jews, Jewishly curious persons, and Jewishly-connected partners are welcome at ROOTS programs. This group is open to folks of all genders, races, and sexual orientations. Each meeting is led by a therapeutic advisor and a spiritual advisor who guides participants through experiential learning sessions.
Why participate in The ROOTS?
Small groups often provide healing and connecting opportunities different than individual friends or family. Through The ROOTS, participants will reflect on their family-building experience, find Jewish spiritual healing, and connect with others going through a fertility journey over monthly online meetings.
The hope is that participants build long-lasting connections with peers and mentors that will offer valuable sources of support during their family-building journey.+ More... - Less...
